The Form Wizard

By now, you've learned how to create a number of common forms. Access gives you one other way to build a form: using the Form wizard. The Form wizard has an uncanny similarity to the report wizard you used in Chapter 8. It asks you a series of questions and then builds a form to match. However, the questions are fairly rudimentary, and the form it builds is little more than a good starting point for further customization.

Here's how to put the Form wizard through its paces:

  1. Choose Create → Forms → More Forms → Form Wizard.

    The first step of the Form wizard appears.

  2. From the drop-down list, choose the table you want to use.

    In the Available Fields list, the wizard shows all the fields that are in your table.
